I would like to voice my support for the proposals for the addition of
the uses of environmental variables to CSS
(http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-css-potential#pgfId=1029312).  It offers a
great potential to both authors and users, but users particularly. 
Rather than having to rely on the application itself to define how
various items were rendered, the user would be able to define it using
CSS.  And if we want users to begin using CSS themselves on a large
scale (rather than only having web authors use it), this is a powerful
way to get them involved.
